Last week long-time Council for Quality Growth friend and Tucker City Councilmember Bill Rosenfeld passed away. “Bill was a great friend to the Council and to all of us. He was always pleasant and great to be around. Most of all he was devoted to the betterment of his community through his service on Tucker City Council and the Tucker/Northlake CID. We thank him very much and our hearts and prayers are with his family.” Said Michael Paris, President & CEO at the Council for Quality Growth.
Rosenfeld, 77, represented east Tucker since the city was chartered in 2016. He won reelection in 2019 by receiving 77% of the vote. Also, the longtime owner of Rosenfeld Jewelry.
“Today we are heartbroken over the passing of our dear friend and colleague Bill Rosenfeld,” the City Council said in a press release. “Bill will be remembered for much more than his role as a City Councilman. By the time he ran for office in 2016, his legacy as a pillar of the Tucker community was well-ingrained – a leader in the DeKalb County Fire Department, a champion for the business community, a volunteer giving of his time and treasure, and a man of great faith. On City Council, Bill showed himself to be a principled public servant who acted with total integrity. He personified The Tucker Way.”
“Above all, Bill was an exemplary husband, father and grandfather. Our prayers are with his wife Carmen and their family as they mourn this tremendous loss.”
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to one of Bill’s favorite charities, NETWorks Cooperative Ministry. A Memorial Page has been set up just for Bill.
